    Default Postpartum Questions

    I have a question/concern:

    This could be tmi, but I had Logan 9 weeks ago. The bleeding stopped between weeks 4 & 5. It started back up at week 7 and only lasted a couple of days. It started back up yesterday complete with cramps.

    I am exclusively breastfeeding him, but he goes 10 hours at night before his morning feed.

    Does this mean that my period has started? If it starts again in 2 weeks, do I contact my ob/gyn?

    I can't remember with the others

    Thanks!

    Did you have a 6-week follow-up check? I think I would call and ask just to find out if there's a concern etc. I can't help you with any personal experience; I bled for 9/8 weeks respectively with my kids.

    I did have my check-up last week, but didn't think or know that this would happen.

    I know that my cycles are never the same after, but is this normal (or along the normal lines)? I just don't want to over-react and call the dr.'s office for nothing. But I guess if it continues on this trend, I'll have no choice.

    Thanks.
